I wanna know. Why people wouldn't want the remakes. So, instead of taking an approach of being against them, I will listen to the reasoning behind the skepticism of remakes, by understanding why people didn't like these games. Naturally, to me, they were pretty good games. So with this, I would begin to understand the logic behind someone not wanting the remakes now, and also people would ridicule potential possibilities of remakes. They might not be linked, but it's a start. (:
Let me make this crystal clear; Ruby and Sapphire remakes are coming this generation (gen 5). Get the hell over it.
That being said, my biggest complaint when they came out was the lack of day and night. It was a big feature of Gold/Silver/Crystal, and it seemed weird that they'd have gotten rid of it. I've long since gotten over it though. It's a pretty miniscule issue, and so I've let it go.
...How is that a reason? Did people treat it like it was never gonna catch on and I never noticed?
The original GBA was pretty awkward. It was clunky, the screen was hard to look at (though it was an issue with past gameboys as well), and it all around just wasn't all that special (edit: at least in my opinion). I had a friend that had one, and I'd played it enough to not really like it. The SP, however, was awesome. It took everything about the original GBA that I didn't like, and it fixed it.
